The Gobagg: How to carry essentials on your bike and at your destination

September 16, 2021

The Gobagg was created in order to allow you to carry your essentials on your bike and at your destination. Hang it on your bike while you ride, and on your shoulder when you're walking thanks to the hidden shoulder strap.

Mounting

First off, let's get your new bag mounted to your bike.

The bag rests on your top tube and ties around your head tube with the leather strap and metal knob. it's important to tie the front of the Gobagg around your head tube to avoid the bag sliding backwards. The bag is made to fit a maximum head tube diameter of 1.75” (4.5cm). 

The Gobagg also has a snap at the back of the bag to tie under your top tube. It can wrap around a maximum diameter of 1.5” (3.8cm). This snap is good to tie for extra security, but unless you’re riding around on rough terrain where the bag is jumping around on your bike, it is not always completely necessary.

How To Use it Best

The Super-Secret Shoulder Strap

The Gobagg’s shoulder strap attaches to a small ring inside the zipper at the bottom of the left pouch. You can stuff the strap inside this pocket when you not using it.

When you hop off your bike, ready to use the strap, you can pull it out of that little pocket and clip the other end to the D-ring on the other side of the bag next to the zipper.

Finger Holes

On the other hand, if you’re not going far with your bag, you can simply use the holes in the leather at the top to carry the bag to and from your bike.

About The Zippers

The zippers on this bag might seem a little different than most other bags. If you haven’t noticed already, the double zippers open towards the middle.

One zipper is used to open and close when your Gobagg is on your bike. Pull the zipper towards you while you’re riding to open the pouch. Just make sure not to open it too far down so your stuff won’t fall out the back.

The other zipper is used when you’re wearing the bag with the strap. So, you can open the top of the bag only and access your stuff from the vertical position.

Little tip: Make sure your zippers are properly closed on each side when transitioning from bike to walk mode or vice versa.
 

Materials, Water-Resistance, & Durability

The Gobagg is made of a nylon fabric and high-quality leather. We use nylon fabric that is highly water resistant and waterproof zippers. All the seams are doubled over with extra nylon, but they are not water sealed.

Essentially, the bag is designed to keep all the rain and road-splash out. Just don’t bring it with you in the lake and your stuff should stay safe and dry inside the bag.
